      i was appointed on short notice on friday to preach in a morning service to a congregation on sunday at my local church,the point is i have never stood in front of one and even when selected to i firmly decline with unsurmountable excuses.i have been painfully shy from my childhood and everybody who has known me have made it a label,standing in front of people gives me jitters,even when holding a microphone my hand and voice visibly and audibly tremble until i came across 2 timothy 1:7 “you have not received the spirit of FEAR but POWER, LOVE and a SOUND MIND.” and also having read your articles about the holy spirit i’ve been longing to walk with him ever since.so i asked him to use me as his vessel that the congregation would not see me but him.Before standing to address the congregation i felt led to read from isaiah 61 which says”the spirit of the lord is upon me because the lord has anointed me to preach…….”i stood in front of the congregation,held the microphone no shaking,looked straight in to the faces below me with no fear at all,preached the word boldly in so much as those who knew my history personally were amazed and mouth agape having expected me to crawl back in shyness and run off the stage.the seasoned preachers didn’t even know that it was my first time addressing a congregation.some people were asking questions as to why i’ve never participated seeing that i taught quiet well.i responded to one that i was not alone but the holy spirit had anointed me to preach.

      Amen! Thank you for sharing. God is good and faithful to His word. It’s amazing what we can do when we just yield to the Holy Spirit. Blessings

      Hi MOP this is a sequel to the prophetic word abundance.i seem to lack the words to explain exhaustively concerning the goodness of the lord towards me.i have been volunteering in a local organisation since january 2022 with no fruits to show just checking in and out.i was led to volunteer with this organisation after being turned down last year in december from a permanent and pensionable job opportunity from the government because i refused to give a bribe to the panelists who picked me.The finance coffers of this particular local organisation office were dry and nothing was going on.i kept reporting to work faithfully and declaring the word of the lord concerning the office Romans 8-28,Psalms 34-10,Philipians 4-19,Psalms 24-11 and my eyes were firmly fixed on the lord as the giver of all things and thanking him.After the prophetic word of abundance,the office signed a contract with an NGO and i was offered a position which i never interviewed for and even during my assesment my bosses were the ones who answered the questions on my behalf they told the supervisors that they believed that i could handle the job.
